Having made his first senior appearance for the Sky Blues last season, in the League Cup against Gillingham, Tom Billson is out for more first-team experience this season with a loan spell at League Two side, Scunthorpe United. A fixture of the under-23 side in recent years, Billson looked reasonably assured in his first senior appearance for the club last year – albeit, having had little to do due to the team’s control of the game. Tall and a decent shot-stopper, just how Billson copes with first-team football is anyone’s guess.
With question marks over both senior goalkeepers, there is a chance that if Billson does exceptionally well with Scunthorpe this season, he might get a look-in next year. There is an awful lot of work for Billson to do to get to that point, not least with his starting place at Scunthorpe United not assured. The next year or so could define whether Billson ever becomes a regular player at Coventry City.
